    Firstly thanks to all those who took the time to review and give feedback on my first attempt at producing a photo web site.

    I have now revised the site trying to take onboard all the comments I received.

    If you have time please take a look and let me know what you think.

    I found comments on one of the forums to a package called JAlbum, I have only one comment on it and that is it is fantastic, I cannot believe it is a freebie!!!

    Hope that you find this version more pleasing and worth a visit.

    Thanks

    John

    Hi,

    Tried to edit this bit in but I guess since it is a day old the function goes.

    Changed the Galleries Index page so that all the folders are on one page.

    Again if you have got time feedback would be great.

    Thanks

    John

    Quote: Monitoring and analysing your Web site's traffic is important. Serious sites analyse their server logs to glean a wealth of information about who's visiting. There are plenty of fine tools for doing this available free, so there is never any need to rely on such a crude and imprecise measurement as the so-called "hit counter." It's another piece of visual clutter that serves no purpose, and is considered one of the classic signs of a tyro's site.

    Take the 'hit' counter off.

    Take a look here.

    It is getting better and it's easier to navigate. Keep at it.

    I note your pics are generally 3000x2000 jpegs with some 5+mb. You really dont need files that large and you are asking for them to be ripped off.

    Actually isn't the image size info just the exif data? Not sure why its there, but the image sizes look fine; they load nice and fast.

    You're obviously having a lot of fun with this! I wonder what screen resolution you're working at? With a screen set to 1024x768 which seems to be the standard entry level screen these days, your visitors will be scrolling their screens to see all the portrait oriented images. I try to post images no more than 500 pixels high to avoid this. If you're sure your visitor have fancy big monitors this is of course not a problem.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for taking the time to look and feedback...

    I will look at a different counter.

    Yes the image size is from the EXIF file and is of the orignal image, didn't know whether to leave it in or not.

    My screen is 1024x768 and yes I do have to scroll to get all the image still thinking about that one.

    Thanks again,

    John

    Take a look at statcounter.com its free and you get great and useful site traffic stats and you can configure it so that there is no visible 'hit meter' on your webpages.

    Thanks Keith,

    Have changed the format of my counter so that it doesn't show anything other than a small box graphic.

    Looked a your counter and may switch to that on an update.

    Thanks again for taking the time.

    [OT] A bit of study of early photography might help you not make the mistake of thinking it was all "point and shoot". Check Hurley or Adams for example.

    It might be worth re-reading the home-page text for grammatical errors too.
